    The smell of this fire-cured cigar is ghastly, like burnt rubber. Luckily, they don't taste like that.

    First impression is mostly sweet, with some fermented hay in the background. At least, that's what it reminds me of.

    This one tastes a lot smokier than an earlier KFC I smoked. I kept this one in a sealed bag so as not to stink up my humidor. Maybe that's why.

    There's not a whole lot of variation so far but the basic smokey flavor is interesting enough.

    Under the cigar band, the wrapper changes, turns a shade or two darker. This should have some impact on the flavors.

    Just to mark the end of the lighter wrapper: strong, creamy and nutty flavors.

    Flavors at the start of the darker wrapper are markedly different, full-on leather and coffee.

    Just gave the cigar a good purge as the draw was getting a bit tight. Very nice, light fruity flavors now.

    The purge only gave brief relief. I think this baby is done. A very interesting cigar that every aficionado should give a try, in my opinion.
